About the property

In the exclusive enclave of Belongil Beach is Byron Bay’s best kept secret for those seeking ambience, uniqueness and indulgence. A spectacular oasis that affords total privacy yet is only a few kilometres from the centre of Byron. Our chic, modern and sleekly designed cottages are elevated within a pristine rainforest setting. One of the few properties in Byron Bay positioned right on the sand, guests are rewarded with majestic ocean views here at the confluence of the Coral Sea to the north and the Tasman Sea to the south.

Shambhala @ Byron has 4 beachside cabins/cottages onsite:

Our largest and most versatile cottage, Sarita sleeps up to five guests.

Bed 1 - King Bed - can be split

Bed 2 - King bed - can be split

Bed 3 - single

It’s perfect for a family getaway, or a friends retreat. Elevated into the treetops, the main floor features a large living space and full bathroom with laundry facilities. The large, well appointed kitchen is perfect to test your culinary craft and prepare a heavenly feast for loved ones. With lovely furnishings and modern décor, it’s an inspiring space to contemplate, write, sketch, or snuggle up with a good book. The keyless rear door of the cottage opens to the deck and barbeque area, which overlooks Sarita’s private spa garden. It’s adorned with Buddhist statues, a water feature, and elegant lighting.

The timber stars levitate guests to the second floor of the cottage. The upper level contains the master bedroom, equipped with king sized bed, walk in closet, and flat screen television. French style doors open to reveal a rain forest view terrace. The second bedroom also provides a king bed.

Both the master and 2nd bedroom King beds can be split into 2 singles to allow for family groups or a friends getaway. The third bedroom is equipped with a king single bed. As with all bedrooms at Shambhala, it also features a flat screen television, DVD, and Foxtel pay television. The bathroom completes the second floor with shower and spa style bathtub.

The common beachfront area provides Sarita guests with their own day bed to relax by the beach.

You don’t need to be a prince, princess or even a god to experience the heaven on Earth that is Shambhala’s Sarita Retreat. Re-connect with loved ones, relax, and get your creative juices flowing like the creek upon which the cottage is aptly named, Sarita is Eden in Byron Bay.

“Happiness is not something ready made, it comes from your own actions.” Dalai Lama

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in the "Samahdi" retreat, and absolutely loved it! Gemma and all the guys are very friendly and helpful and the property is absolutely stunning.

A must try is the coffee at Belongil Bistro, a 2 min walk up the road...

Beautiful spot

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was very nice and clean, and the provisions such as beach towels, kitchen amenities, etc were fine. It had a very nice leafy / treetop feel which was very relaxing. The location is right on the beach, just a 20min stroll along the beach to the main Byron shopping strip. We visited the more local cafe's numerous times which are just a 5min walk along the road. Small hiccup with the admin and charging, but the owner was very attentive and sort it out quick smart. Would recommend to family and friends.
